What Causes Resistant Cystic Acne?
Cystic acne is considered the worst form of acne. It results from the interaction between a natural occurring bacteria, Propionibacterium Acnes (P. Acnes) and oils on skin. When mixed, this initiates an inflammatory process that causes clogged pores and ultimately leads to localized infection and cyst formation. When these cysts are picked, the resulting scarring can go on to leave permanent marks on the skin.
What Treatments are Available for Cystic Acne?
The current treatment paradigm consist of one of two approaches addressing either the bacterial or the oil component of the problem. On the bacterial side, we have all heard of products like Tetracycline, Doxycycline, Clindamycin, etc. These are the most commonly prescribed antibiotics taken by mouth. This treatment is flawed by the fact that the infection that occurs in acne patients are localized and not systemic. The majority of the medication is wastefully circulated within the body and cannot not be directed specifically to impact the skin affected by acne. And like all medication, these prescriptions can have potential side effects. In contrast, other medications have been prescribed to tackle the other factor in this process … oils on the skin. Benzoyl Peroxide, Retinoids, Accutane, etc, are medications designed to dry the skin. This is obvious not the ideal state of healthy skin. Patients placed on these regimens inevitably have the classic red, flaky and inflamed appearance which is often painful. In addition, some of these medication… Accutane, for example, can be toxic to the liver and has been linked to birth defects.
Why is Dr. Lam’s The Complete Acne Solution Revolutionary?
My “Complete Acne Solution” is a revolutionary treatment powered by B-Cidal, a “Safe Acid Technology”. This proprietary compound is applied topically and eliminates the P. Acnes bacteria virtually on contact while maintaining the protective mechanism on the skin (acid mantle) against other potentially harmful microbes.
Applied twice daily, this treatment is isolated to the affected skin only and causes no systemic effects. In more severe cases, medical grade extractions are recommended as an adjunct to complement this treatment in order to achieve optimal results in the shortest amount of time.
Is The Complete Acne Solution Treatment Right for Me?
The best way to determine if the “Total Acne Solution” is right for you is to schedule an initial complimentary consultation with Dr. Lam. His acne treatment protocol will be discussed in detail during the consultation and you will be evaluated to determine whether this treatment is medically appropriate.
